More work for FDs
It’s a given that FDs are not known for their love of technology. Most see ‘version 10.1.2’ of their accounting application as a cost they could well do without.
But FDs of tech firms are much more IT-savvy. SAP and Oracle finance chiefs will often put their ‘sales hats’ on and spend a lot of time with FDs of prospective and current clients. But imagine them sat with your tech guys implementing said 10.1.2?
Well, during the launch of Enterprise CRM, a new UK partner of on-demand software company Salesforce, TS discovered that ALL their staff must be accredited with Salesforce, ie, able to do the techy implementation work and that includes the FD Daragh Mulchay.
TS wonders how much they pay the cleaners.
